You can hear all four of our finalists read their highly commended entries in yesterday’s blog post.
A big thank you to all the children and young people who entered the Green Pencil creative writing competition. We enjoyed reading all your writing.
For this year’s theme – Year of Scotland’s stories – P4-P7 aged children and young people in S1-3 were challenged to write a poem, piece of prose or story on the theme.
Once again, we were unable to hold an awards ceremony in Central Library, so here instead, you can listen to the finalists read their highly commended entries in these special Green Pencil videos.
Congratulations to all our talented finalists!
